Frankel and Black Caviar offered £1m incentive

Posted on | 0 Responses

The camps of two of the best flat racing horses in the world – Frankel and Black Caviar – have been offered a £1 million prize fund to set up a contest between the pair.

Goodwood Racecourse and sponsors Qipco are offering to increase the purse for the Sussex Stakes on August 1st from £300,000 if both horses run.

Frankel, trained in Newmarket by Sir Henry Cecil, has triumphed in his nine starts including last year's Sussex Stakes, while Black Caviar is also unbeaten in her 19 races in Australia.

Sheikh Fahad Al Thani – who helps run Qatar-based investment firm Qipco – said he hoped the incentive would help lure the pair to the one-mile Group One race.

"The sport is blessed to have two such outstanding horses competing at the same time and we felt it would be remiss not to make every effort to try to bring about the race," he continued.
